Cyberduck Tutorial – Quick Look, Transfer Queue and Synchronizing

Cyberduck Tutorial – Quick look, transfer queue and synchronizing

In the forth part of our Cyberduck tutorial, learn to use the quick look tool, understand and manage the transfer queue and use the synchronizing feature.

How to use the Quick Look feature

The quick look feature opens a file in your remote site by downloading a temporary copy and opening the file using the corresponding program. The file is not downloaded onto any specified folder and opens immediately upon successful download. Typically, the quick look feature is used to view and edit files in your remote site quickly without having the need to manage file location in your local site. To use the quick look feature, follow the instructions below:

  1. Click “View” located at the top of Cyberduck and select customize tool bar
  2. Find the quick look icon and next, click and drag the icon into your tool bar to create a shortcut to the quick look tool.
  3. Highlight the file in your remote site that you want to open
  4. Click the quick look icon that you just added into your tool bar.
    The file should automatically open as long as the corresponding program exists on your computer. If the file does not open using the correct program, go to “Edit”(on Windows) or “Cyberduck”(on Mac) located at the top of Cyberduck, select preferences, then go to “Editor”. Use the drop down menu to select “choose” and browse your local site for the appropriate program.

How to use the Transfer Queue

The transfer queue allows you to view a list of current, pending, successful or failed transfers. Typically, you use the transfer queue to manage the priority and speed of your transfers. To properly learn how to use the transfer queue to your advantage, follow the instructions below:

To set a default upload or download directory:

  1. You can set a default download directory by going to “Edit”(on Windows) or “Cyberduck”(on Mac), clicking preferences and selecting the “Transfers” tab.
  2. Underneath “Downloads” you can specify a download folder, upload folder and other transfer options appropriate to your use case.

To change the amount of simultaneous transfers:

  1. Click the “Transfers” icon to view your transfer queue.
    If you don’t see the Transfers icon, go to “View” at the top of Cyberduck, click customize toolbar and then click and drag the transfers button into your toolbar to create a shortcut.
  2. In the transfer queue, use the up and down buttons located at the bottom of the transfer queue to change the amount of simultaneous downloads.

To change Transfer Speeds

Changing transfer speeds allows you to manage the maximum amount of bandwidth used on uploads and downloads. Typically, this is used to limit the amount of bandwidth being used by Cyberduck, freeing up bandwidth for other situations. To change your transfer speeds, follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to “Edit”(on Windows) or “Cyberduck”(on Mac) located at the top of Cyberduck, click preferences and select bandwidth.
  2. Use the drop down menu underneath downloads and uploads to change the maximum transfer speeds for each.
    Alternatively, in the transfer queue, you can click the gear icon to select the transfer speeds during a transfer.w

To use the Synchronizing feature

The synchronizing feature allows you to select two folders, one in your remote site and one in your local site, to mirror each other. Typically, this is used to backup local files or upload files in real-time. Any updates made to the selected folder will automatically happen in the synchronizing folder. To use the synchronizing feature, follow the instructions below:

  1. Select a folder in your remote directory (HostedFTP account) that you want to mirror your local folder.
  2. Click “File” located at the top of Cyberduck and select “Synchronize”.
  3. Browse your local directory for the folder you want to have mirrored and select choose.
  4. After a certain delay, a new window will open and allow you to select the synchronization options.
